My dear Miss Wilhelmina
I certainly very deeply regret to have your decision as I have a grade in the School ready & waiting for you.  
I am anxious that you should be associated with us-  At the same time I realize the difficulty in your way-  
I do hope the time will yet come when you can be working with us.

With affectionate esteem
Your true friend
W.P. Jacobs
